5 Step Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Are you hosting Thanksgiving this year and need something special to take your table to the next level? Well I have you covered! You most likely have these 5 items on hand to whip up this lovely centerpiece!

Let me walk you through it!

Easy Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Here is what you will need to get started!

Step 1 for a Simple Thanksgiving or Fall Centerpiece

First, find a large tray that has a large lip or side to it. I used one similar to this one here.

I chose a tray for the base so I could move it around and have it on either our kitchen table, dining room table or kitchen island. So basically this centerpiece is portable! 🙂 Ha!

Usa a tray and some moss as the base of your centerpiece.

Step 2 for a Simple Thanksgiving or Fall Centerpiece

Next, you will spread some moss around the edges or the entire tray if you like. I just used it around the edges because that’s all I had!

Then simply nuzzle a wreath of your choosing on top of the moss. I chose this one I found at Rod Works because it had some fun texture to it.

You can any type of wreath that fits your Thanksgiving tablescape colors!

Then since the center was open my mom and I collected a few of my faux pumpkins to try in the center of the wreath. This shorter rounder one from Target fit best. You could also you a real pumpkin like I did in this simple and organic easy to make Fall centerpiece.

After scrounging around a bit in some drawers I found these dried artichokes from last Fall’s tablescape and you may remember these green pears from my Fall kitchen. They both worked to add some fun color and texture to the centerpiece.

The final step is to enjoy your Thanksgiving decor. Remember, that it is truly about who you get to share your table with, not the decor. The decor is just an extra touch.
